Raid the Barn
Anthony B Lyrics

Yugguh Yoi, Yugguh Yoi, Yugguh Yoi
Emperor Selassie I
Jah Jah is the only way

Nobody wannu plant the corn
Everybody want to raid the barn
Who yuh a guh blame it on
When is a next man yuh a depend pon
Well yuh wrong
Nobody wannu plant the corn
Everybody want to raid the barn
Haffi sing yuh owna song
Can't compete with careless John

Verse 1:
I was looking a start, just a little ease off
no one would help me push that old had caart
Dem a laugh, never tak mi serious
So many goals and thoughts and potholes
I pass everyday My Lord, I have to pray on my way
Dem never realise with a little cooperation
Wi coulda unify relieve the frustration
Instead dem want to ride upon dem bredda back
No tears or cares if him even did stop or drop


Verse 2:
I feel please, when a tek a litte ease
From a long hard day of work
A sense of achieving, to know I'm contributing
Doing my part, oooowi dis is my comfort
I know there is a reward for every trying man
Who walk this land with an intention
To do good for hiself and everyman
Just a meditation


Verse 3:
Well I've been up from early this morning
Never drink nuh tea, mi never eat nuh fry dumpling
Never see no one to strengthen me on mi journey
Now mi mek a change di whole a dem waan fi fren mi
Waan fi take it all, nuh mind ef mi stall
Dem nuh business if mi back gainst the wall
Dis yah living sometime mek mi ball
Seems like there ain't no love after all

I feel please when take a little ease from a long hard day of work. A sense of achieving to know I'm contributing doing my part.
This is my comfort, I know there's a reward for every trying man who walks this earth with an intention to do good for himself and every man!!

One of the most powerful verses in the history of ALL music genres.
